setfocus after alert in javascript

amy
I have a text box, after user input the value, a validate function
trigered. if the value is invalid, alert display, and also set focus
back to this control.

The alert displays, but when the click the 'OK' in the alert, the set
focus to this field does not work.

see the code bellow:

if (run!="" && IsNumber(run)== false && decimalinputval id(run,2)==0 )
{
alert('wow');

//first try doen not working
(setFocus) ? document.paperc altbl.printorde r.focus() : ""

//seconde try doen not working
this.getField(" printorder").se tFocus();

//third try doen not working
document.getEle mentById("print order").focus() ;
}

Please give some advise. Thanks in advance.

Are you sure that
setFocus
is global?

the
this
will probable not refer to what you want.

I assume the focus error comes in Mozilla/Netscape?
Maybe you should put an url or or more info into your question?

I'm trying to setfocus on a textbox after an error conditions, but the compile insists that 'textbox.setfocus' isn't a valid command. I'm using all the web page default setting, but am creating it in a FrontPage environment. Does anyone know what I can do to make this command work?

So, basically, I need to detect whether an alert window was thrown. I can't find where it's thrown from but I need to disable a button only if there were no alert windows thrown. Any ideas? Thanks Alex

While reading c.l.j, I've noticed that some people prefer and indeed even recommend the use of "window.alert()" over "alert()". I can't find any technical reason to make this distinction, and seems to have a (tiny) amount overhead since window itself points to the global object, hence, a circular reference. (From everything I am reading, window is just a REFERENCE back to the global object, as opposed to a separate object.)
